12 1JESUS therefore, six days before the pasch, came to Bethania, where Lazarus had been dead, whom Jesus raised to life. 2And they made him a supper there: and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that were at table with him. 3Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of right spikenard, of great price, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, he that was about to betray him, said: 5Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the purse, carried the things that were put therein. 7Jesus therefore said: Let her alone, that she may keep it against the day of my burial. 8For the poor you have always with you; but me you have not always. 9A great multitude therefore of the Jews knew that he was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. 10But the chief priests thought to kill Lazarus also: 11Because many of the Jews, by reason of him, went away, and believed in Jesus. 12And on the next day, a great multitude that was to come to the festival day, when they had heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried: Hosanna, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord, the king of Israel. 14And Jesus found a young ass, and sat upon it, as it is written: 15Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy king cometh, sitting on an ass's colt. 16These things his disciples did not know at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things to him. 17The multitude therefore gave testimony, which was with him, when he called Lazarus out of the grave, and raised him from the dead. 18For which reason also the people came to meet him, because they heard that he had done this miracle. 19The Pharisees therefore said among themselves: Do you see that we prevail nothing? behold, the whole world is gone after him. 20Now there were certain Gentiles among them, who came up to adore on the festival day. 21These therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying: Sir, we would see Jesus. 22Philip cometh, and telleth Andrew. Again Andrew and Philip told Jesus. 23But Jesus answered them, saying: The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24Amen, amen I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground die, 25Itself remaineth alone. But if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, keepeth it unto life eternal. 26If any man minister to me, let him follow me; and where I am, there also shall my minister be. If any man minister to me, him will my Father honour. 27Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But for this cause I came unto this hour. 28Father, glorify thy name. A voice therefore came from heaven: I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 29The multitude therefore that stood and heard, said that it thundered. Others said: An angel spoke to him. 30Jesus answered, and said: This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. 31Now is the judgment of the world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things to myself. 33(Now this he said, signifying what death he should die.) 34The multitude answered him: We have heard out of the law, that Christ abideth for ever; and how sayest thou: The Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man? 35Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while, the light is among you. Walk whilst you have the light, that the darkness overtake you not. And he that walketh in darkness, knoweth not whither he goeth. 36Whilst you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. These things Jesus spoke; and he went away, and hid himself from them. 37And whereas he had done so many miracles before them, they believed not in him: 38That the saying of Isaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he said: Lord, who hath believed our hearing? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39Therefore they could not believe, because Isaias said again: 40He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart, that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 41These things said Isaias, when he saw his glory, and spoke of him. 42However, many of the chief men also believed in him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, that they might not be cast out of the synagogue. 43For they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God. 44But Jesus cried, and said: He that believeth in me, doth not believe in me, but in him that sent me. 45And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me. 46I am come a light into the world; that whosoever believeth in me, may not remain in darkness. 47And if any man hear my words, and keep them not, I do not judge him: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48He that despiseth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him; the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. 49For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father who sent me, he gave me commandment what I should say, and what I should speak. 50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting. The things therefore that I speak, even as the Father said unto me, so do I speak.
